What's the best way to clean the new Ultrabrite laptop...smooth and glossy...
screen? I've always used distilled water and a soft cloth on my laptop
screens, but it's hard to make them smear-free when drying, and it's even
harder on a glossy screen.

Thanks!
Scott

Any spray eyeglass cleaner that's roughly 50% denatured alcohol and 50%
water (use a soft, lint-free cloth) should do just fine, Scott. And don't
wipe in circles, just in either horizontal or vertical (not both), straight
lines.

Even cheaper than buying eyeglass cleaner is to just buy a spray bottle
and fill it with 50/50 isopropyl alcohol and water. I use those
microfiber cleaning cloths and spray the cloth. Make sure to run the
cloths through the washing machine first - some of them have some sort
of coating on them when new.

Does it really matter? You can't drink either of 'em! ;-)
